Cinder by Marissa Meyer

 

 

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on. Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder’s intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that’s been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter’s illness, Cinder’s stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an “honor” that no one has survived. But it doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.

Dark Water by Parker Bilal

 

 

When an Englishman, Marcus Winslow, appears at Makana’s door one April morning, Makana does not realize that he will soon risk losing everything he has built for himself in Cairo. Winslow represents the British government–meaning the Secret Intelligence Service–and he has a special mission to offer, one that Makana cannot resist: Ayoub Hadari, a dangerous specialist in biochemical nerve agents, is on the run and asking for asylum. The only person who can bring him in is Makana–by Ayoub’s own request. Ayoub has gone underground in Istanbul and Makana, for the first time since arriving in Egypt, must travel abroad, to a city he doesn’t know. Can he trust Marcus Winslow? Or is something more sinister in the works? In this foreign city, Makana soon realizes that nothing is what it appears to be. Suddenly, his past is racing to catch up with him, and Makana becomes both hunter and hunted.

Kiss My Boots by Harper Sloan

 

 

 

In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after—but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She’s the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren’t worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw’s farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start—but if he’s being entirely honest, he’s not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he’s been missing….

This is my first book by Sarah Morgan and part of a series, I must say I didn’t pay attention when I got this title for review. But it can easily be read as a standalone without being confusing or having the feeling you miss something. I wasn’t sure if I would but I really enjoyed this book. I liked the story , the writing and the characters. I also really enjoyed the Dear Aggie parts, which was really Molly but still … it made it just a tad more enjoyable. I also liked that they took it slow and started being friends first even though both felt the attraction, I wasn’t sure about Molly at first and she seemed a bit too much at first but I ended up really liking her and of course Valentine. I also really enjoyed Daniel. Just enough macho not too much not too little. Overall, the book was really enjoyable and I will be reading more by this author.

I rate it 4 ★

Review: New York, Actually by Sarah Morgan
New York, Actually: A Romance Novel (From Manhattan With Love) - Sarah Morgan

Unknown to all but four people, Molly is actually the popular relationship expert, Aggie. With a well-liked, successful blog and best-seller to her name, Molly has finally found peace-of-mind after upending her life and moving from London three years ago. As long as nobody discovers her real identity nor the horrors of her past, she’ll be perfectly content with her life and one love, Valentine the Dalmatian.

 

Daniel is a highly motivated, premier divorce lawyer. He loves to be with women - giving them what they want - without strings. And when he sees Molly running with Valentine in Central Park day after day, he goes after her; however, the only way to get her attention is to borrow a dog to walk in the park. Now that he’s got Molly’s attention, he needs to figure out how to get her to open up and let him in.

 

New York, Actually is another wonderful romance in Ms. Morgan’s From Manhattan with Love series. I was concerned at the beginning that I wouldn’t like this book because it has themes that I don’t really enjoy, like dishonesty, holding secrets to “protect” the other, and a set up for potential public humiliation. However, Ms. Morgan eased all my fears and wrote a wonderful story. She never avoided the set up she put in place, but rather allowed her characters to mature and develop genuine feelings for one another. She afforded them the opportunity to feel the angry, hurt, joy, etc. and then let them think about it and come back around. I absolutely enjoyed it!

 

Daniel and Molly are a perfect match. She always breaks hearts and he doesn’t have a heart to break. Due to Molly’s wariness, the couple was forced to take time and start the friendship process before acting fully on their mutual attraction. The missteps and falters were needed, but together, the pair used their hearts, experiences, and their brains to move past the hiccups.

 

I am thankful that Molly’s identity was revealed to Daniel in the middle of the book, rather than at the end. Instead of everything going swimmingly until BAM the big conflict at the end, the pair dealt within increasingly difficult issues until the climax, but by then they were prepared to deal with the issues head on. I also enjoyed all the little tie-ins to the first three titles, yet the book expands into a new subset of friends and experiences.

 

New York, Actually has a lot of heart. It is a little messy, but filled with genuine and caring kindness. It is a feel-good romance which has to work for the HEA, making it all the more satisfying. 

 

My Rating:  A- Enjoyed A Lot

Für immer und einen Weihnachtsmorgen - Sarah Morgan,Judith Heisig

Für immer und einen Weihnachtsmorgen - Sarah Morgan

 

Der neue Roman „Für immer und einen Weihnachtsmorgen“ von Bestseller-Autorin Sarah Morgan lässt nicht nur Weihnachtsstimmung aufkommen, er besticht auch durch eine wunderbar romantische Geschichte und gut durchdachte Protagonisten.

Skylar ist von ganzem Herzen Künstlerin. Nicht ganz zum Gefallen ihrer recht unterkühlt wirkenden Eltern, die für ihre Tochter gänzlich andere Pläne haben. Als da wäre Richard, der potenzielle Schwiegersohn und aktuelle Lebensgefährte von Sky. Sowie natürlich ihr Wunsch, dass Skylar sich, den Anforderungen einer gehobenen Gesellschaft entsprechend, endlich gemäß ihrer vorgesehenen Rolle verhält. Trotz aller elterlichen Erwartungen, widmet sich Skylar ihrer künstlerischen Passion. Ausgerechnet an Skylar‘s persönlich großem Abend jedoch, als sie ihre Werke auf der von ihr lang ersehnten Vernissage vorstellen darf, kommt es zu einem Zwischenfall und Skylar stolpert unverhofft in die Arme ihres vielleicht ärgsten Widersachers, dem kauzigen Wissenschaftler Alec und guten Freund ihrer besten Freundinnen. Alec rettet Skylar zwar wider Willen vor der Presse, würde sie doch am liebsten gleich wieder los werden. Doch so einfach wie gedacht, ist es letztlich nicht – einmal ganz abgesehen von den Gefühlen, die sich nach und nach zwischen den beiden entwickeln..

Ein Liebesroman, par excellence. Und eine Geschichte, die ich von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite genossen habe! Vom Schreibstil her sehr eingängig, entwickelt sich eine wunderbare „Beziehung“ zwischen den beiden Hauptprotagonisten, die sich natürlich mit allen zur Verfügung stehenden Mitteln gegen ihre Gefühle zur Wehr setzen. Gut durchdacht und strukturiert, ergeben sich hitzige bis witzige Dialoge und vielfach romantische Szenen. Die Figuren sind allesamt sympathisch und wirkten in Wort und Tat authentisch. Gut gefiel mir zudem die Einbindung der Nebenfiguren, die ein wichtiges Standbein des Romans sind. Nicht zuletzt wohl, weil dies bereits der 3. Teil einer Roman-Reihe („Puffin Island“) ist (wobei es sich trotzdem um ein „Solo“ handelt und der Roman auch ganz klar für sich allein stehend gelesen werden kann). Die einzelnen Erzählstränge sind toll miteinander verwoben und es gibt meiner Ansicht nach keinerlei Kritikpunkte. Der Roman erfüllt wahrlich alle Erwartungen, die man haben könnte! Es wurde nie übermäßig kitschig und blieb auch bis zu den letzten Kapiteln noch spannend! Für mich war es sicherlich nicht das letzte Buch der Autorin! Ein toller Liebesroman und schöner Schmöker, nicht nur passend in der Vorweihnachtszeit! Absolute Empfehlung, 5 Sterne.
